Nick Venuto Memorial Ride 2014

Today we rode in memory of Nick Venuto. Nick was tragically killed by a vehicle on the 56 bike path in May of 2011 while commuting home from work. He was an avid cyclist who rode with the Descenders, completed the California Triple Crown, and rode the Ride Across California with his son. His friends and family dearly miss him.

In honor of Nick, a large group of Descenders met at his memorial on the 56 bik path: Eric G, Tony, Jim Broder, Paul and Adam Pruschki, Dave Sheehan, the Barralls (Geoff, Naomi, Erika, Ethan and Noriko {photographer}), Dave Voris, Dave Ernst, Rob, Larry, Rick W, Dave Guidotti. Joining us a bit after the group picture were Glen Gallo, Bob Proulx and Bryan Jones. A great turnout.

We rode at a gentle pace up Camino del Sur to San Dieguito and down to El Apajo. At that point, I turned off with Glen Gallo and my kids to head down to El Camino Real and back home on the 56 bike path. We took it easy. It was a beautiful day for a ride.

As Oleg would say, you should have come,

Geoff Barrall
